BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (AP) - A Bridgewater woman has been sentenced to a year in jail and five years of probation for being drunk and causing a car crash in 2011 that killed one woman and injured two other people.
Patricia Neville-Colp was also sentenced Tuesday to 250 hours of community service and lost her driver's license for 15 years.
Prosecutors say on Sept. 10, 2011, the 51-year-old Neville-Colp crashed into the vehicle Maureen O'Brien Ellis was riding in with her sister, Martha Cadoff, and brother-in-law Steve Cadoff, while she was merging onto Route 24 south in Randolph.
O'Brien Ellis died.
